Florida State football, recruiting news: For FSU this year it’s playoff or bust

LSU ends FSU’s run for a title in Omaha.

NCAA Football: Orange Bowl-Michigan vs Florida State Logan Bowles-USA TODAY Sports


While head man Jimbo Fisher has bemoaned the hyper-importance of the college football playoff according to Bleacher Report anything less for FSU this year is unacceptable.

They had a 29-game winning streak just a few years ago, winning the BCS title in 2013 before earning the No. 3 seed in the 2014 CFP. But they have lost at least three games in each of the past two seasons and weren't a factor in the playoff picture either season. That's unacceptable in Tallahassee, and it would be a major problem for Jimbo Fisher if that skid extends to a third year—particularly given how dominant this roster could be.

But a playoff appearance could be a tall order considering just how big of a game Alabama vs FSU could be.

And while a playoff appearance may be a tall order; if you believe FSU might be the best team in the country like the boys over at then maybe it is to be expected.

But the first thing FSU will have to do is figure out how to solve the biggest headache on its schedule, the bevy of ultra-talented pass rushers on the schedule.

3 and outs are bad, and a few ACC atlantic teams were really good at avoiding that scenario.

The newcomers have arrived and they’ve picked out their jersey numbers. 5-star signee Khalan Laborn isn’t shying away from Dalvin Cook’s No. 4.


Only appropriate on #ThrowbackThursday to take a look back at FSU’s ridiculous 2012 recruiting class.

FSU is working to flip Nadab Joseph from LSU (VIP).

Make no mistake about it; this year’s recruiting cow bell is local commitment Amari Gainer.

FSU is firmly in the mix for 2018 DB Quindarious Monday:

Speaking of recruiting do you think Bobby Bowden could’ve landed a 6’8 232lb wide receiver:

It’s a big night tonight for Jonathan Isaac and Dwayne Bacon. As they look to make their NBA dreams come true tonight. Isaac is projected to go in the top 10; while Bacon is projected to go in the middle of the second round.

Baseball ended its title run in a 7-4 loss to LSU in Omaha; it’s a tremendous finish to a season in which a little over a month ago postseason baseball was very much in doubt.
